Once you’ve enjoyed Rotterdam from the ground it’s nice to head upwards and look down on the city’s famous skyline.
Maybe you would not expect old buildings in Rotterdam but the Laurens church dates from the Middle Ages. Furthermore, the tower of the Laurenskerk has some wonderful views over the city centre.
De Rotterdam NH Hotel terras
De Rotterdam, designed by Rem Koolhaas, is the largest building in the Netherlands. The terrace of the NH Hotel based in De Rotterdam is a great place to enjoy the skyline of Rotterdam.
The rooftop bar on the Groothandelsgebouw shows great views over the new Central Station, the city boulevard Weena and the neighbourhoods of western Rotterdam.
The Kralingse Bos, quite some distance from the centre, is a surprising place to enjoy the skyline of Rotterdam. The Kralingse Bos and Kralingse Plas are the biggest wood and lake in town.
